From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Thermoelectric power may refer one of a few distinct things:
- Rate of change of the thermoelectromotive force of a thermocouple with temperature.The tangent of calibration curve of aThermocouple.Which is defined as dv/dθ(change in electromotive force for per unit change of temperature)
- Electrical power generated from a heat source, such as burning fossil fuel-coal,oils, indirectly through devices like steam turbines.
- The thermopower, or Seebeck coefficient, of a material, which governs its thermoelectric properties (a misnomer, as this quantity has units of voltage per unit temperature).
- The power output of a thermoelectric generator that uses the Seebeck effect.
